Attenuation Medium Gravity*                        79% – 81% 

Attenuation High Gravity*                              79% – 81% (10.6% – 11.3% ABV)

Temperature Range:                                   64˚F – 80˚F

Flocculation:                                                  Low


Description:  Classic Belgian yeast from one of the best known Trappist breweries.  A fragrant yeast that produces delicious fruity aroma.  Good choice for high gravity beers.  Generally, the warmer this yeast is fermented the higher the level of fruit aromas produced.     


Representative Styles:

* Attenuation was measured after 8 days with Ale yeast at 70˚F and Lager yeast at 50˚F.  Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚Plato.  High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato. 

  The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style.  As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68˚ – 72˚F and then lower or raise temp as desired.  Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45˚ – 58˚F.  If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 65-68˚F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs).
